Street Sweeping

City of Vancouver streetsweepers help keep debris out of our stormwater system

Residential streets in the City of Vancouver are swept approximately every eight or nine weeks, except during severe weather.

Street sweeping helps keep sediment, leaves and other debris and pollutants out of the our stormwater system, which generally flow to our creeks and rivers. And it helps prevents localized street flooding due clogged drainage catchbasins.

Street sweeping is a service of the Public Works' Operations Center Stormwater team, protecting our community's water resources and increasing the livability of our city.

Street sweeping schedules are posted here and on the Vancouver Public Works Facebook Page. For easy updates, like our page!

Sweeping Schedule:

NOTE: Due do the recent windstorm, Vancouver Public Works crews are focusing on removing debris and clearing streets and public rights of way. Although we all like our streets swept clean, regular scheduled neighborhood sweeping could be postponed or schedules adjusted as crews continue with cleanup efforts. It takes loaders and dump trucks, not sweepers, to remove the limbs and big branches. Thank you for your patience. And please remember: Do not put any leaves or other tree debris into the street.
